Rousey wants to be female version of ‘The Rock’

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

Ronda is the most dominant women's champion ever and has already begun transitioning into a movie star with roles in the Expandables and Entourage movie. Rousey has plenty of time fighting still with the UFC, but believes long time she might have what it takes to be a huge movie star:

“I never thought that being an action movie star was in the cards for me. My agent kept telling me, 'You're going to be the female Rock.' Then I started to believe it could be a reality. I don't half-ass anything. If I'm going to do something, I'm going to do it to be the best in the world at it. A lot of actresses appear in action movies, but there aren't any female action stars. I love Angelina Jolie, but … it's about believability for me. Milla Jovovich is one of my favorite actresses — The Fifth Element really opened my eyes, and the Resident Evil franchise was amazing. So definitely a mix of Milla Jovovich and The Rock is what I'm going for. People love chick fights. They love tough, empowered women. And there is a demand. People just don't know it.”
